Friday, 24 October 2008
Last Tuesday, when we reached home, Free was alone and Ben was nowhere in sight. I grabbed a torchlight and searched for Ben in the neighborhood, knocked on neighboor's door and looked in the ditches and bushes. Some neighboors told me they saw few kids holding a kitten earlier that evening. The description sounds so much like Ben. There you go, me and my CSI-style interogation . Hehe.
We suspect that Ben was kidnapped. I made a quick sketch (we don't have Ben's picture yet) and create some missing-kitten-posters. I am hoping to get cooperation from the parents, just in case the kidnapper is one of their children. Guess what, just now I received a phone call from our front neighboor saying that she saw Ben in front of our house!! I can't wait to get back home. Somebody must have returned him! Whoever you are, thank you (anyway)!
Whatever it is, I must see the cat first to make sure it is really Ben. Relax, don't get excited yet.

You can be happy right now.
Yes, right now.
With the decision to be happy.
You don't need more money (though it would be nice).
You don't need to be thinner (though you might like it) .
You don't need anything (though you might still want things)."
Something knocked my head. How true. Happiness is a choice. Think about it.

On the second day of Raya, we went to visit few of my husband's friends and the last house we visited that evening was one of the stilted house in Tanjung Aru water village. I never been to any water village before, and it has been a very unique experience. I always thought people residing the water village are illegal immigrants, but now I know, local people do stay there! I was amazed how spacious and comfortable the interior, and the house is equipped with electricity and clean water supply. It was really beyond my expectations. According to my husband, the area we visited was the "legal" side, gazzeted by the goverment for the locals to reside long time ago. That is why houses there look much organized than the other side visible from the land. He used to follow his friends there when he was a kid.
As soon as we enter the house, the rain was pouring down like cat and dog! I must mention how great the hospitality shown by the host and her family. We felt so welcomed eventhough we never meet them. We only follow Abg Zul's family fulfilling the open house invitation. We waited till 5.30pm and chat about kuih sampan before we deciced to take a move. Sharing an umbrella with Abg Zul's youngest daughter does not help. My skirt was soaking wet. My hubby, Abg Zul and his wife, Kak Jah walked in the rain without umbrella. I could not walk fast because I was busy watching my steps. I afraid I would get tripped and fall off the bridge to the rough sea below. The bridge is quite narrow and almost only one person can walk at a time. The best part was, everyone walked behind us.
After walking about 1km, we reached Abg Zul's house before maghrib, but we all locked outside the house for almost half an hour. Abg Zul's eldest daughter was sleeping upstairs and unable to hear us knocking on the door. Kak Jah insisted that I should change my wet clothes before going back. She gave me a pair of baju kurung but the it was too short for me. I just use a batik sarong to absorb excess water. Lucky to my hubby, Abg Zul's jeans and shirt fit him, so he was dry and comfortable to continue chit-chatting. They were expecting another friend to come, actually. He promised to come at 5 0'clock, that is why we were rushing to get back to Abg Zul's house. There was me, maintaining my smile, trying to signal my hubby with eyes and body language but to no avail. When Kak Jah came, she offer me laksa. I could not resist and we stay there till my clothes almost dry from the fan blows. My stomach was very full. The laksa was hot, sour and tasty, but I bet the memory would be sweet.
In the car, I told my hubby that I was soaking wet, he said, "Eh, ingatkan you tak basah sebab pakai payung (I thought you're unwet because you have umbrella)". Duh...
I did not bring my camera, so I cannot show you the picture of the house. Above photo is from Flickr, credit to Phil Eadie.

Last but not least, here are the tags made from my ATC paper leftovers created using their stamps' image.
Wednesday, 24 September 2008
I have tried to update my blog many times, atleast talk about my handcarved stamps and interest in art. However, most of the attempts end up saved as draft, and they remain as draft until I decided to delete them. Trust me, I have lots of story to share but I don't know where to start.
This is something which I was working on yesterday. It is not yet finished but I hope it will trigger more upcoming updates.

Quoting Antown's say regarding this tag; "DALAM rangka menyambut bulan suci Ramadhan tahun 2008 ini saya punya ide untuk buat tags. Mohon maaf sebelumnya, bukan berarti saya ingin membuat anda repot. Anggap saja saya sedang mengkampanyekan bulan ini sebagai bulan yang harus kita hormati, bagi umat muslim khususnya".
Hey, I like the sounds of the word "mengkampanyekan"!. I seldom watch Indonesian film or telemovie and this is my first encounter with the word. I had fun playing the word over my tongue. Of course the meaning is different but the word gives me a glimpse of crispy rempeyek in my mind with extra peanut and anchovies! Hahaha! My best buddies back in university always said we get more imaginative and creative when hungry. I couldn't agree more my friend!
Welcoming this blessed month of Ramadhan, I'm wishing every Muslims Happy Fasting!!
I'm passing this meme to more than 5 persons; Rizal, Kak emila, Kak Ida, Kak Sha, cecima, Baizurah, Abgjas and Fara Owl. As usual, the instruction goes as follow ya! I purposely retain the original Indonesian version as created by antown.
